Abstract

Condensing osteitis of the clavicle is a rare benign condition of unknown aetiology which afflicts women of child-bearing age. It is characterised radiologically by sclerosis of the infero-medial aspect of the clavicle, with preservation of the sternoclavicular joint in the early stages of the disease. The clinico-radiological features of this condition are discussed in this review, together with other conditions which resemble this entity.
